    Kinda strange....right at about 20 years ago is when Lee Shepherd wrecked in testing and was killed driving for Reher & Morrison.

    That was a NASTY wreck. Korestsky has a bruised heart and is banged up pretty bad. Heard that Allen was gonna get out of hospital today.

    Wow, I need to try to catch the highlights.
    I read the story on NHRA.com, sounds pretty nasty.

    That was a most horrid crash really spooky. I hope all the guys that want to buy "cheap" saftey gear see it and realize that the prices on saftey gear are worth it. Godd cage construction solid helmet design and these guys are going to live. Think about it this winter while your looking for extra HP, maybe that money would be better spent on gussets for the cage, and the best damn helmet you can buy!!!

    just drive it!!!!

    yep i've seen really nasty crashes @ dirt tracks and all the drivers walk away with just bruising. i'm a tech inspector and i'm really ontop of all the rules/regulations. if i see a driver with a DOT helmet he doesn't race until i physically see a SA helmet.i even look over there firesuit and if i can see thru it or there is any cuts/abrasions it's no longer a usable piece of safety equipment
